BONUS - total of 20 different fire safety themed QR codes!!! By scanning these QR codes, your students will view 20 different read aloud stories, songs, and videos to enhance your fire safety theme.
For the first time, I've included a link to a website - www.sparky.org - which is filled with stories, activities, and games about fire safety. Although I've checked out the site completely and feel that it is safe for my students, you may want to check it also if your district has strict policies about student website use.
This is a great center (or something for your students to do when they finish early or as a reward!)! If you are lucky enough to have access to technology devices (ipods, ipads, tablets, etc.), then this center is for your students! You will need to download a FREE QR Scanner App.
I was careful to make all of the links in this file 'kid safe.' The videos are derived from YouTube, but are funneled through the Safeshare site to ensure that students are not watching or seeing things they shouldn't be seeing. When the QR Code is scanned, the resource pops up and the student pushes play.
Print the main sheet and/or iPads with individual QR codes, laminate and cut out. This is a lot less expensive than buying each individual book and CD's for your listening center! It also provides a variety of videos for your students to enjoy as they learn about fire safety.
A few of the TWENTY active QR code links are:
Clifford the Firehouse Dog by Norman Bridwell,
Fire Truck by Ivan Ulz,
Dot the Fire Dog by Lisa Desimini
many fire safety songs,
many fire safety videos,
a link to www.sparky.org,
and many more!
Your students will have the opportunity to see all 20 of the QR codes contained in this file to enhance your fire safety unit!!!
When I create files, I use a variety of videos from YouTube. However, more often than we would like, videos are removed from YouTube causing "broken" links in my files. If you happen to find a "broken" link in this or any of my products, please leave a comment for me so I replace the "broken" link, update and upload the file, and you can reprint for continued use.
